Pseudoepitheliomatous hyperplasia is a benign proliferation of the epidermis into irregular squamous strands extending down into the dermis. Pseudoepitheliomatous hyperplasia can arise either from the epidermis or from adnexal epithelium, and is almost always associated with persistent inflammation of the subjacent dermis due to a chronic wound, ulcer, infection, malignancy, retained foreign material or an inflammatory dermatitis. It can closely mimic, abut, or degenerate into a squamous cell… 
Verrucous Hemangioma With Pseudoepitheliomatous Epidermal Hyperplasia in an Adult Horse
TLDR
The immunohistochemical study confirmed the endothelial origin of the tumor, and a final diagnosis of verrucous hemangioma with pseudoepitheliomatous hyperplasia was confirmed, the first detailed description of this entity in adult horses.
Primary Cutaneous Lymphoma-Associated Pseudoepitheliomatous Hyperplasia Masquerading as Squamous Cell Carcinoma in a Young Adult.
TLDR
A 22-year-old man referred to the authors' hospital with a solitary nodule persistent on his forearm which was diagnosed as squamous cell carcinoma in the first biopsy is presented, and histopathologic and immunohistochemistry examination revealed anaplastic large cell lymphoma with florid pseudoepitheliomatous hyperplasia which masquerading as well-differentiated squamouscell carcinoma.
Pseudoepitheliomatous Hyperplasia: Relevance in Oral Pathology
TLDR
Insight is given regarding the various concepts of etiopathogenesis, histopathology, differential diagnosis, and malignant potential of PEH.

TLDR
DVIN present diagnostic difficulty and considerable interobserver variation also exists, and it is suggested that Ki-67 and p16INK4A are useful for distinguishing DVIN and classical VIN 3, whereas p53 and CD1a are usefulFor distinguishing DVin and invasive squamous carcinoma.
Pseudoepitheliomatous Hyperplasia: A Word of Caution
TLDR
Determining whether or not additional studies are appropriate should not be taken lightly with a diagnosis of PEH, as the decision may result in significant consequences.
Cutaneous Pseudoepitheliomatous Hyperplasia from a Displaced Metallic Orthopedic Implant
TLDR
The case of a displaced orthopedic screw causing pseudoepitheliomatous hyperplasia that was initially misdiagnosed as squamous cell carcinoma is presented, highlighting the importance of careful consideration of surgical history, choice of biopsy method, and skin type when examining lesions concerning for squamouscell carcinoma.
Marjolin ulcer: an overlooked entity
TLDR
This is a case report of a Marjolin ulcer arising on the left buttock of a patient with a long‐standing history of a traumatic wound.
Laporan Kasus: Hiperplasia Pseudokarsinomatus Hipofaring oleh karena Sporotrikosis Case Report: Pseudocarcinomatous Hyperplasia of Hypopharynx due to Sporothrichosis
TLDR
This study reported one case of pseudocarsinomatous hyperplasia of hypopharynx due to sporothricosis of a 57 year old woman who complained of lump in her throat accompanied by heartburn and sensation of stomach acid reflux to the throat.
Pseudoepitheliomatous Hyperplasia in Mycosis Fungoides

Expression of laminin‐5 γ2 chain in cutaneous pseudocarcinomatous hyperplasia
TLDR
This study compared the expression of laminin‐5 in pseudocarcinomatous hyperplasia and squamous cell carcinoma and found that expression of this protein is higher inhyperplasia than in SCC.

TLDR
PEH was identified only in vulvar LS, and was associated with increased epidermal thickness, less dermal edema, more dermal inflammation, fresh fibrin, and red blood cell extravasation, which suggests that PEH might be a reaction to tissue damage.
Massive Pseudoepitheliomatous Hyperplasia: An Unusual Reaction to a Tattoo
TLDR
Physicians are encouraged to consider massive epidermal hyperplasia in the differential diagnosis of a verrucous tattoo reaction, which on histopathologic examination showed marked pseudoepitheliomatous epider malasia secondary to the tattoo.
Pseudocarcinomatous change in lymphomatoid papulosis and primary cutaneous CD30+ lymphoma: a clinicopathologic and immunohistochemical study of 6 patients.
TLDR
6 cases of pseudoepitheliomatous hyperplasia mimicking squamous cell carcinoma in association with an atypical CD30+ dermal infiltrate demonstrate that PEH associated withCD30+ lymphoproliferative disease may closely resemble squamouscell carcinoma, thereby leading to inappropriate diagnosis and treatment.
Malignant lymphoma presenting as pseudoepitheliomatous hyperplasia. A report of two cases.
TLDR
The authors report two patients with cutaneous and submucosal non-Hodgkin's lymphoma of probable T-cell phenotype that presented as florid pseudoepitheliomatous hyperplasia that were originally misdiagnosed as invasive squamous cell carcinoma, causing a delay in appropriate treatment.
Atypical pseudoepitheliomatous hyperplasia and squamous cell carcinoma in chronic cutaneous sinuses and fistulas.
TLDR
In the presence of soft-tissue and bony invasion, a diagnosis of well-differentiated squamous cell carcinoma is appropriate even in the absence of unequivocal cellular changes of malignancy.
Pseudoepitheliomatous hyperplasia in cutaneous malignant melanoma: a rare and misleading feature
TLDR
The histological picture suggested a superficial spreading malignant melanoma, but the presence of the unexpected well-differentiated squamous cells raised the possibility of a bizarre presentation of a poorly differentiated squamous cell carcinoma.
Pseudoepitheliomatous hyperplasia in cutaneous T‐cell lymphoma. A clinical, histopathological and immunohistochemical study with particular interest in epithelial growth factor expression
TLDR
Epidermal expression of EGF, EGFr and TGF‐α was stronger in CTCL than in control normal human skin, suggesting that these cytokines, in association with other factors, are probably involved in the epidermal hyperplasia observed in some cases of C TCL.
Pseudoepitheliomatous hyperplasia secondary to cutaneous aspergillus.
TLDR
It is concluded that cutaneous aspergillosis should be included in the differential diagnosis of causes of PH, especially in a patient population at risk for this infection.
Metastasising malignant lymphoma mimicking necrotising and hyperplastic gingivostomatitis.
TLDR
The case of a 65 year-old woman suffering from recurrent oral aphthoid ulcers which rapidly evolved towards hyperplastic and ulcerated lesions over the entire floor of the mouth, leading to death within 4 weeks due to acute gastro-intestinal bleeding is presented.
Morphometric study of pseudoepitheliomatous hyperplasia in granular cell tumors of the tongue.
TLDR
The mean area, the mean perimeter and the mean diameter of the 50 largest squamous epithelial nuclei in 50 fields were found to be significantly larger in squamous cell carcinomas than in granular cell tumors and normal tongues.
